General Information 



HISTORY AND PURPOSE 

Catholic Theological Union at Chicago was founded 
in 1967 as a creative response to the call sounded by Vatican 
II for a renewed theological education for priesthood. Three 
religious orders originally sponsored the school: the 
Franciscans of the Sacred Heart Province, the Servites of 
the Eastern U.S.A. Province and the Passionists of the Holy 
Cross Province. The school was incorporated pursuant to 
the laws of the State of Illinois in November 1967. Classes 
began in the fall quarter of 1968. In January 1972, Catholic 
Theological Union was accredited by the Association of 
Theological Schools. The North Central Association of Col- 
leges and Secondary Schools granted accreditation in March 
1972. 

Since its founding, other religious communities have 
designated Catholic Theological Union as their official 
theologate: The Augustinians (1968), the Norbertines (1968), 
the Cincinnati Province and Kansas City Province of the 
Society of the Precious Blood (1968), the Missionaries of 
the Sacred Heart (1969), the Society of the Divine Word 
(1970), the Eastern Province of the Congregation of the Holy 
Ghost (1971), the Claretians (1972), the Viatorians (1972), 
the Xaverian Missionaries (1973), the Crosiers (1974), the 
Comboni Missionaries of the Heart of Jesus (1976), the Pon- 
tifical Institute for Foreign Missions (1976), the St. Nicho- 
las Diocese in Chicago for Ukrainian Catholics (1978), the 
Priests of the Sacred Heart (1979), the Assumption Province 
of the Franciscans (1980), the Congregation of the Blessed 
Sacrament (1980), the St. Paul of the Cross Province of the 
Passionists (1981), the Capuchins (1982), the St. John the 
Baptist Province of the Franciscans (1982), the Society of 
St. Columban (1984), the Redemptorist Fathers and Broth- 
ers (1984),the Central United States Province of the Mis- 
sionary Oblates of Mary Immaculate (1985), the Western 
Province of the Congregation of the Holy Ghost (1985), the 
Oratorians (1987), the Maryknoll Missioners (1988), the St. 
John the Baptist Province of the Missionary Oblates of Mary 
Immaculate (1988), the St. Bonaventure Province of the 
Franciscan Conventuals (1988), and the Missionaries of St. 
Charles-Scalabrinians (1992).

THEOLOGY 

REVIEW 

STAUROS 



Catholic Theological Union is unique among schools 
of theology and seminaries. It is not a coalition of indepen- 
dent schools. Rather, the participating orders closed their 
individual theologates and merged their resources into one 
school with one administration and faculty. Control is vested 
in the Board of Trustees. The school has the advantage of 
unity of administration and breadth of tradition and support 
and has been accepted by its peers in the world of theologi- 
cal education. 

Catholic Theological Union is the largest Roman 
Catholic school of theology in the United States, serving 33 
provinces and abbeys of religious men as an official 
theologate. It also serves other students, lay and religious, 
in the preparation for ministry. One out of every eight reli- 
gious priesthood candidates in the United States is educated 
at Catholic Theological Union. 

A living sense of purpose guides a school more effec- 
tively than any written statement. From the very beginning 
it was understood that Catholic Theological Union would be 
a school of ministry. Theology would be directed to prac- 
tice. The by-laws concisely stated this objective: "to train 
and teach aspirants to the Roman Catholic priesthood so that 
they may be fully qualified to meet the requirements of such 
priesthood." 

As a school grows, a periodic review of its purposes is 
necessary. In 1991, Catholic Theological Union reviewed 
its goals and adopted a new Identity and Mission Statement: 



HISTORY 

AND 
PURPOSE 



Identity 

Catholic Theological Union is a graduate school of theology and min- 
istry sponsored by Roman Catholic religious institutes and societies of apos- 
tolic life. In response to the Second Vatican Council, the school's founders 
chose to unite their seminaries in order to educate more creatively for the 
religious priesthood and to locate the school near other graduate schools of 
theology and the University of Chicago in order that students and faculty 
may benefit from and contribute to theological scholarship and ministerial 
formation in an urban, ecumenical and university setting. Reflecting the 
diverse cultures, nationalities and races of the women and men who make up 
the CTU community, the school sees the pursuit of justice, inclusivity and 
collaboration as integral to its ethos. 

Mission 

The primary mission of Catholic Theological Union is the academic 
and pastoral formation of students preparing for the priesthood and for a 
variety of other ministries in the United States and around the world. The 
school also provides continuing theological education for clergy, religious 



and lay persons. CTU is committed to theological education and scholarship 
within a community of faith in interaction with a living Catholic tradition and 
ecumenical, interfaith and cross-cultural perspectives and resources. Through 
its degree programs and other educational and formational opportunities, CTU 
strives to educate effective leaders for the church whose mission is to witness 
Christ's good news of justice, love and peace to people of all nations. 

The central focus of Catholic Theological Union is the 
priesthood candidate. In the spirit of the Program of Priestly 
Formation, the school has adapted its programs to the present 
needs of church and society. Today, such adaptation involves 
an additional commitment to education for the wide variety 
of ministries emerging in the church, for women and men, 
religious and lay, as well as continuing education for those 
already involved in ministry, both ordained and non-ordained. 
Half of Catholic Theological Union's current students are 
among those preparing for such ministries or are in programs 
of continuing education for their current ministries. 

LOCATION 

Catholic Theological Union is located in Hyde Park 
on Chicago's south side. This is a cosmopolitan, stably inte- 
grated community with a strong sense of identity. Within 
walking distance are shopping centers, theaters, restaurants, 
churches, parks, the Lake Michigan beaches and the Mu- 
seum of Science and Industry. Downtown Chicago is fifteen 
minutes away by car or rapid transit. More importantly, 
Catholic Theological Union is close to the Divinity School 
of the University of Chicago and to several other schools of 
theology in the area: Chicago Theological Seminary, 
Lutheran School of Theology at Chicago, Meadville/Lombard 
Theological School and McCormick Theological Seminary. 



CAMPUS 

Catholic Theological Union occupies three buildings 
on Cornell Avenue. Seven floors of the ten-story building at 
5401 South Cornell Avenue provide space for classrooms, 
administrative and faculty offices, chapel, library, dining and 
lounge facilities, meeting rooms and audio-visual laboratory. 
Additional office and classroom facilities are located in the 
building at 5326 South Cornell. 

Living quarters for some of the religious communities 
of men occupy three floors of the building at 5401 South

Cornell Avenue. Living quarters for other students are lo- 
cated in the 5326 and 5420 buildings. Both efficiency and 
one-bedroom apartments are available. 

THE LIBRARY 

The Catholic Theological Union Library contains 
100,000 volumes, providing resources for study and research 
by students and faculty members. It currently receives over 
580 periodicals. In addition to the general theological hold- 
ings, the library has special collections in mission studies, 
history of religions and homiletics. 

The Association of Chicago Theological Schools' li- 
braries, one of the largest theological bibliographical re- 
sources in the Western hemisphere, consisting of more than 
1,200,000 volumes in theology and allied fields, are avail- 
able to students enrolled in CTU. A courier service circu- 
lates books and periodicals for inter-library loans. 

CTU's membership in the Association of Chicago 
Theological Schools, the Chicago Library System, the Illi- 
nois Library Computer System Organization and the On-line 
Catalog Library Cooperative allows library patrons access 
to other library resources in the city of Chicago, the state of 
Illinois and the rest of the nation.

CHICAGO RESOURCES FOR 
THEOLOGICAL EDUCATION 

From its earliest days, Chicago has been a major cos- 
mopolitan center. Its many neighborhoods represent a wide 
variety of racial and ethnic groups, as well as a broad spec- 
trum of cultural and religious traditions. 

In recent years Chicago has also become one of the 
largest centers of theological education in the world. Its 12 
seminaries with over 4000 students and 400 faculty and its 
diverse possibilities for interfaith exchange make Chicago 
an unequalled resource for the study of theology and ministry. 

Catholic Theological Union enjoys a variety of col- 
laborative relationships with the other theological institu- 
tions of the city through two distinctive, interlocking con- 
sortia. 

The school works closely with four other institutions 
in Hyde Park, which, together, form the Hyde Park Cluster 
of Theological Schools^ The other institutions are the Chi- 
cago Theological Seminary (United Church of Christ), 



Lutheran School of Theology at Chicago, Meadville/Lombard 
Theological School (Unitarian/Universalist Association) and 
McCormick Theological Seminary (Presbyterian Church, 
USA). The Hyde Park Cluster works to develop coordinated 
and joint programming as well as other academic services 
for students and faculty. 

The Association of Chicago Theological Schools rep- 
resents another form of collaboration. Its membership in- 
cludes the five Hyde Park schools plus Northern Baptist Theo- 
logical Seminary, located in the western suburbs, and five 
northside schools, Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary 
(United Methodist), North Park Theological Seminary (Evan- 
gelical Covenant), Saint Mary of the Lake University (Ro- 
man Catholic), Seabury-Western Theological Seminary 
(Episcopal) and Trinity Evangelical Divinity School (Evan- 
gelical Free Church). The Association fosters student cross- 
registration, coordination of library access and acquisition, 
faculty discussion and communication among the schools. 
It offers to 4000 students in its 12 schools more than 1000 
courses annually and library collections in excess of 1.2 mil- 
lion volumes, with nearly 5000 currently received periodi- 
cal subscriptions. Further information on the Association 
may be found in the current edition of its Announcements. 

The participating institutions in each of these groups 
maintain educational autonomy and grant their own degrees. 
Each school also preserves its confessional identity and theo- 
logical traditions. Catholic Theological Union's participa- 
tion follows the guidelines set down in the Ecumenical Di- 
rectory of the Secretariat for Promoting Christian Unity and 
in the Program of Priestly Formation of the National Con- 
ference of Catholic Bishops. 

Students may enroll in courses in any of these 11 
schools without additional tuition or registration charge upon 
approval of their academic advisors and the registrar. They 
enjoy library privileges in these schools at no charge. 

THE CHICAGO CENTER 
FOR GLOBAL MINISTRIES 

The Chicago Center for Global Ministries (CCGM) was 
founded in 1993 by Catholic Theological Union, the Lutheran 
School of Theology at Chicago and McCormick Theologi- 
cal Seminary to coordinate and develop their resources for

meeting the challenges of globalization in the world today. 
Specifically, this entails teaching, training and research in 
the areas of cross-cultural ministry, interfaith dialogue, world 
mission and urban ministry. 

The CCGM works to coordinate course offerings 
in these areas and helps the three schools plan to meet other- 
wise overlooked curricular needs. It also serves as a forum 
for faculty development and helps develop interschool re- 
search projects related to these areas in globalization. In 
addition, it provides support on related issues (e.g., interna- 
tional student services, the annual World Mission Institute, 
cooperative international programs).

JEWISH 
STUDIES 



THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO 

Catholic Theological Union is located near the cam- 
pus of the University of Chicago, one of the great research 
institutions in the world. Its Divinity School is renowned 
for historical research and the preparation of teaching schol- 
ars. 

A special plan of bi-registration permits CTU students 
to register for courses in the University at a substantial re- 
duction of tuition. 

By special arrangement, certain M.Div. students may 
pursue a coordinated sequence of study whereby they re- 
ceive the M.Div. degree from Catholic Theological Union 
and the Ph.D. degree thereafter from the University of 
Chicago's Divinity School. A dual A.M. in Social Work/ 
M.Div. can be earned by collaboration between the U.C. 
School of Social Service Administration and CTU. Details 
on these arrangements may be found in the M.Div. section 
of the catalog. 

JEWISH STUDIES 

In 1968 the Jewish Chautauqua Society established a 
resident lectureship in Judaism at CTU for the purpose of 
providing offerings in Jewish studies in the curriculum. 
Hayim Goren Perelmuter, Rabbi Emeritus of Congregation 
K.A.M. Isaiah Israel and past President of the Chicago Board 
of Rabbis, has served as Chautauqua Professor of Jewish 
Studies at CTU since 1968.

LECTURESHIPS 



The Charles and M. R. Shapiro Foundation has annu- 
ally sponsored a series of lectures by leading Jewish schol- 
ars. The same grant also makes possible other events to fur- 
ther Jewish-Christian dialogue. 

The Northern Province of the Society of the Divine 
Word established the Divine Word Scholar-in-Residence in 
1976 to bring instructors from other countries to teach at 
CTU. These lecturers offer courses for one or more quarters 
during the academic year. Other participating communities 
at CTU have periodically supported visiting lectureships to 
enrich the offerings in the school's curriculum. 

NEW THEOLOGY REVIEW 

New Theology Review is a joint publication of the faculties 
of the Catholic Theological Union and Washington Theo- 
logical Union with the publishing assistance of The Liturgi- 
cal Press. The journal applies recent research in biblical 
studies, systematic theology, ethics, liturgy, and spirituality 
to the problems and issues confronting the pastoral agent in 
the contemporary church. Though principally focused on 
the situation in the United States, NTR often extends its reach 
to questions before the church in other parts of the world. 
Faculty from the two sponsoring schools contribute substan- 
tially to the journal, but NTR also draws from among the 
leading authors on the religious scene today as well as en- 
couraging new voices. 

STAUROS 

Stauros, U.S.A., is an ecumenical, not-for-profit orga- 
nization which promotes studies and programs on specific 
areas of human suffering. Stauros, U.S.A., has been located 
at CTU since 1981. Stauros engages in dialogue with the 
suffering, with the helping professions and with religious 
traditions. A major activity is the publication of the bi- 
monthly Stauros Notebook. Its articles focus on various forms 
of suffering and are drawn from scripture, theology and per- 
sonal experience. 

Stauros is sponsored by the Passionist Congregation. 
It traces its beginnings to 1972 in Belgium; the International 
Secretariat is located in Louvain. Stauros International pro- 
duces a specialized bibliography pertaining to the Passion 
of Christ and to suffering. Harry Gielen, C.P., is the Director 
of the International Secretariat. Ardis Cloutier, O.S.F., is the 
Executive Director of Stauros, U.S.A.

FINANCIAL AID 



The cost of education at Catholic Theological Union 
may exceed the financial resources of some students. The 
school offers financial aid derived from various scholarship 
funds to offset some of these costs. This aid is available to 
students who are undertaking degree programs and is given 
in the form of tuition remission grants. The school also as- 
sists students in applying for federal loans for graduate level 
study. In addition, there are opportunities for student em- 
ployment. 

All financial aid is awarded in quarterly increments 
for a period of one year or less. Awards are renewable based 
on applications submitted annually in the spring of the year. 
Matriculating students must submit a financial aid applica- 
tion with their application for admission. Awards are sched- 
uled as follows: 



Returning Students

SPECIAL SCHOLARSHIPS 

In addition to the general scholarship fund, the fol- 
lowing specialized funds and programs exist: 

Through the International Women Scholarship Fund, 
CTU offers a limited number of one-year scholarships cov- 
ering tuition, housing and books to international women seek- 
ing credentials for Roman Catholic ministry in their own 
country. 

The Mother Mary Catherine McCauley Scholarship

STUDENT LIFE 

The Dean of Students and Community Services is the 
administration's representative for matters of student life at 
Catholic Theological Union. The Dean of Students and Com- 
munity Services works with the Student Executive Commit- 
tee and the Formation Council and serves as liaison between 
these bodies and the administration. The Dean facilitates 
networking among the various communities and individuals 
who comprise the Catholic Theological Union. 

Catholic Theological Union requires that all students 
in professional master's degree programs (M.Div and 
M.A.P.S.) participate in a program of personal and spiritual 
formation for ministry. Students in participating religious 
communities fulfill this requirement through the formation 
provided within their communities. CTU offers some of the 
requisite elements of formation for independent students and 
assists each student to tailor a program suited to his or her 
previous experience and needs. (See the Student Handbook 
for the structure and content of Personal and Spiritual For- 
mation for Ministry.) 

The Student Services Office offers a broad range of 
assistance to CTU students and personnel. These services 
include information on spiritual direction and counseling 
resources, CTU scholarship programs and Stafford Loans, 
ministry placement, health insurance and immigration forms. 
Student Services handles housing for independent students 
and other CTU residents. The office is a clearing house for 
scheduling and publicizing school events. The office serves 
as liaison with the University Chicago Health Service and 
recreational facilities. 

These services and other opportunities are detailed in 
the Catholic Theological Union Student Handbook, avail- 
able from the Dean of Students and Community Services. 

STUDENT EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE 

The basic vehicle for student opinion and action at 
Catholic Theological Union is the Student Executive Com- 
mittee. The SEC coordinates various areas of student re- 
sponsibility and participation in CTU. Through its repre- 
sentatives on the CTU Senate, on the Student Affairs Com- 
mittee of the Board of Trustees and on all school commit- 
tees, the SEC communicates student viewpoints on issues of

school policy and direction. A president and vice-president 
elected by the entire student body head the SEC. At-large 
members representing all students are also elected to the SEC. 
The Student Executive Committee represents the students 
in matters dealing with the faculty and administration, as 
well as student concerns in the other schools of the Associa- 
tion of Chicago Theological Schools. The SEC works closely 
with the Dean of Students and Community Services. 

FORMATION COUNCIL 

The directors of formation of all the participating 
communities at Catholic Theological Union and the Dean of 
Students comprise the Formation Council. The Council 
serves as a forum through which the directors share insights 
and experiences regarding spiritual formation. In certain 
instances the Formation Council may agree on common poli- 
cies in matters which affect the religious well-being of the 
student body, particularly students from the participating 
religious communities, and make recommendations to the 
administration. Formation directors may engage in the aca- 
demic life of the school by attending faculty meetings, serv- 
ing on school committees and, in particular cases, by hold- 
ing joint appointments as CTU faculty and community for- 
mation staff. The Formation Council also places two repre- 
sentatives on the Catholic Theological Union Senate. 

GUIDANCE, COUNSELING AND WORSHIP 

In the matter of academic guidance, each student is 
assigned an academic advisor. 

The participating religious communities of CTU gen- 
erally provide resources in the area of counseling and spiri- 
tual direction for their student members. For independent 
students, referral for counseling and spiritual direction is 
available through the office of the Dean of Students and 
Community Services. 

All students are welcome at liturgies offered by par- 
ticipating religious communities and groups of independent 
students. Additionally, through its Liturgy Committee, CTU 
sponsors all-school liturgies several times per quarter. These 
celebrations are important features of the school's life as a 
faith community. 



16 



HOUSING AND FOOD SERVICE 

Participating religious communities provide housing 
for their own students. Housing for independent students is 
available at 5326 and 5420 South Cornell. Students desiring 
to lease the efficiency or one-bedroom units in these build- 
ings should make application through the Dean of Students 
and Community Services. Housing requests should be made 
as soon as possible after admission to the school and not 
later than thirty days prior to the beginning of the quarter. If 
CTU housing is unavailable, the Dean of Students and Com- 
munity Services will assist students searching for other suit- 
able accommodations. 

Catholic Theological Union has a cafeteria-style food 
service which is open to all school personnel. Meals may be 
purchased with cash or meal tickets. 

Housing and food service prices are subject to peri- 
odic review and change. Information on current charges is 
available on request. 

RECREATIONAL FACILITIES 

Recreational facilities are available nearby as well as 
throughout the city. At a short distance from the school, the 
majestic Lake Michigan shoreline provides an apt setting for 
meditation, walking, jogging and cycling. Beaches and parks 
for studying, picnicking and general enjoyment are all within 
a few blocks. Golf is available in nearby Jackson Park as 
well as close-at-hand Cornell Park. Indoor facilities in the 
area offer opportunities for swimming, racquetball, tennis 
and fitness exercise. The SEC sponsors weekly volleyball 
games. On payment of an annual fee, Catholic Theological 
Union students are eligible to use the University of Chicago's 
extensive athletic facilities.

General Regulations 

ADMISSION TO CTU AND ITS PROGRAMS 

Catholic Theological Union is a graduate school of min- 
istry in the Roman Catholic tradition. All its programs are 
open to serious and qualified students, male or female, who 
wish to prepare for ministries in this tradition. 

Pre-Theological Studies 

Pre-theological studies have been the object of extensive 
research and consultation in recent years. Both the Pro- 
gram of Priestly Formation and the Association of Theo- 
logical Schools give guidelines about the understandings 
and skills prerequisite to theological education. CTU con- 
curs with these statements and has adapted admission re- 
quirements and regulations to their spirit. 

General Admission Requirements 

Doctor of Ministry requirements can be found on pages 
39-40. 

For all other courses of study the following are general 
admission requirements: 

— A bachelor's degree or its equivalent from an approved 
college or university; 

— A completed application form; 

The application form may be obtained from the Admis- 
sions Office. Applications from all students are due six weeks 
before the beginning of the quarter in which they plan to 
enter CTU. Master of Divinity candidates doing field edu- 
cation in the first year must apply by April 15. Early appli- 
cation is to the student's advantage with regard to course 
selection, financial aid and housing. Late applications may 
be accepted, but no guarantee is given that applicants will 
be admitted in time to begin the quarter. 

— Matriculation fee paid to the Admissions Office; 

— Official transcripts of post-secondary education records 
forwarded directly to CTU by the registrar of the 
institution(s) attended; 

Applicants for degrees or certificates are to request offi- 
cial transcripts of all post-secondary courses. 

Continuing education and special student applicants need 
to submit only one official transcript. (If a choice is made 
between schools, please submit records from a degree grant- 
ing school or graduate school.) 



18 



— Letters of Recommendation. 

For studies leading to a degree or certificate, three letters 
are required. 

At least one letter must come from someone who can at- 
test to the person's suitability for theological study and for 
ministry. 

In the case of priests and deacons or members of religious 
institutes which are not participating communities of CTU, 
one of these letters must be from an official representative 
of their diocese or institute. 

Applicants from CTU's participating communities need 
not submit letters, since sponsorship by a participating 
community constitutes adequate recommendation. If the com- 
munity withdraws its sponsorship or if the student leaves the 
community, CTU requires the presentation of a new applica- 
tion requesting re-admission and the presentation of three 
letters of reference. One of the letters must come from an 
official representative of the former community. 

A student in the Augustus Tolton Program whose scholar- 
ship is not renewed must present a new application request- 
ing readmission and three letters of reference. 

For Continuing Education or Special Student Status, one 
letter is required. 

This letter must come from someone who can attest to the 
person's suitability for ministry and ability to undertake 
graduate study in ministerial education. 

Again, applicants from CTU's participating communities 
need not submit this letter. 

CTU reserves the right to require formal evaluation of 
applicants and personal interviews with admissions officials. 

Upon admission, students must comply with Illinois state 
immunization requirements. 

International Applicants 

— In addition to the General Admission Requirements above, 
applicants from outside the United States who do not hold a 
U.S. Passport must submit a letter of financial support or 
personal guarantee of payment. 

— International applicants whose native language is not Eng- 
lish, and who will not by their intended time of matricula- REQUIREMENTS 
tion at CTU hold an advanced degree based on the comple- 

19 



tion of written and oral work in English, must complete the 
Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL). TOEFL 
scores assist CTU to provide appropriate academic advise- 
ment in a student's transition into graduate study. 

Information regarding TOEFL may be obtained from: 
Test of English as a Foreign Language, P.O. Box 6151, 
Princeton, NJ 08541-615 1 . Applicants from places where the 
TOEFL is not available or is prohibitively expensive may be 
accepted conditionally prior to testing. Testing will ordinarily 
be completed during a student's first quarter of study. 

ACADEMIC REGULATIONS 



ADMISSION 
REQUIREMENTS 

ACADEMIC 
REGULATIONS 



Student Classification 

Students are admitted to studies toward degree pro- 
grams after completion of admission requirements of the 
respective programs. They may apply for degree candidacy 
after completion of more than 25% but less than 33% of 
study toward the respective degree. Specific requirements 
for degree candidacy in the various degree programs are listed 
in the respective program manuals. 

Generally persons already engaged in ministry who 
are seeking further professionalization and updating but are 
not choosing another degree program enroll in the Continu- 
ing Education Program. 

Special Student status is normally reserved to those 
who have not yet decided on a degree program or who are 
enrolling for a specific and closely defined objective such as 
courses for initial formation purposes or cross-cultural mis- 
sion preparation. Renewal of Special Student status beyond 
one year is contingent upon the recommendation of instruc- 
tors at CTU and review by the Admission Committee. 

Students enrolling for at least nine hours per quarter 
are classified as full-time students. All others are part-time 
students. 

Registration 

Registration takes place in advance of the quarter on 
the dates announced in the academic calendar. Late regis- 
tration is allowed on the dates so designated in the calendar. 
Registration after these dates cannot be guaranteed. 



20 



Changes in Registration 

Changes in registration are allowed through the first 
week of the quarter without academic or financial penalty. 
After the first week, refund policies for withdrawals apply. 
(See REFUND POLICY, p. 12) 

Class Schedule and Course Load 

Catholic Theological Union operates on a quarter sys- 
tem, with three eleven-week quarters per year. Most courses 
are offered for three quarter credit hours and meet 150 min- 
utes per week for ten weeks, with the eleventh week for study 
and examinations. Classes are scheduled Monday through 
Thursday during the day. Courses are also offered some eve- 
nings and weekends. 

The normal course load is four courses (12 credit hours) 
per quarter. Students may register for an additional course 
with the permission of their academic advisor. 

Course offerings are arranged so that one may pursue 
an M.A.P.S. or M.A. degree in most areas of concentration 
by means of evening and weekend courses. These courses 
are scheduled on a three-year cycle. 

Grading and Standards of Progress 

Grades are given at the end of each quarter and pub- 
lished by the Registrar. The student's academic advisor keeps 
a checklist of advancement toward completion of hour and 
area requirements. 

CTU uses a letter grade system or for some courses a 
pass-fail system. Grades are given and computed according 
to the following schedule: 



A = Excellent 

B = Good 

C = Fair 

D = Poor 

F = Failure 

P = Pass 

WP = Withdrew passing 

WF = Withdrew failing 

I = Incomplete 

PI = Permanent Incomplete 



four quality points 
three quality points 
two quality points 
one quality point

ACADEMIC 
REGULATIONS 



21 



ACADEMIC 
REGULATIONS 



Students must have a minimum of 3.0 cumulative qual- 
ity point average in a degree program in order to graduate. 
Students falling below this cumulative average for two con- 
secutive quarters are subject to probation. Students failing 
to show improvement are subject to dismissal unless there 
are extenuating circumstances. 

CTU reserves the right to dismiss students whose aca- 
demic progress or whose adjustment to the school is unsat- 
isfactory. Students dismissed for poor scholarship cannot 
be readmitted to the degree program. 

Withdrawals 

Students may withdraw from any course up to the end 
of the seventh week of the quarter with permission of their 
advisor. They must follow the procedures outlined by the 
Registrar's Office. After the seventh week, the grade"WP" 
or "WF" will be entered on their transcript for courses from 
which they have withdrawn. Refund policies outlined by the 
Business Office will be applied (see p 12). 

Incompletes 

Students who fail to finish work by a quarter's end may 
petition an instructor for an extension of time up to the end 
of the next quarter. If work is not completed by that time, the 
instructor will give either an "F" or a "PI" for no credit. The 
course may be repeated but the student must register and 
pay tuition again according to the normal procedures of the 
school. 

Petitions for extensions and copies of the policy and 
procedures on incompletes are available in the Registrar's 
Office. 

Failures 

No credit is given for a course in which a student re- 
ceives an "F." If the course is required, it must be success- 
fully completed before the student takes courses for which it 
is a prerequisite or before graduation. 

Transfer of Credit 

Previously earned graduate credit in theology may be 
transferred to Catholic Theological Union. Ordinarily, no 
more than nine quarter credit hours may be transferred into 
M. A. and M.A.P.S. programs; no more than 36 quarter credit 
hours may be transferred into the M.Div. program. No cred- 



22 



its from courses graded below "B" can be transferred. Deci- 
sions about credit transfers are made by the degree program 
directors. Credits will be recognized only after the student 
has successfully completed one year of academic work at 
CTU. 

Advanced Standing 

Students entering M.Div. and M.A.P.S. programs may 
petition to receive advanced standing for previous work done 
in foundational areas. If the petition is granted, hours in 
those foundational areas then become elective. Petitions for 
advanced standing are to be directed to the program director 
who approves and forwards them to the Office of the Aca- 
demic Dean. 

Credit by Examination 

Credit by examination may be sought in many foun- 
dational areas and in select advanced areas in the M.Div. 
and M.A.P.S. programs. Procedures for seeking credit by ex- 
amination are outlined in the M.A.P.S. and M.Div. manuals. 

Credit by Cross-Registration 

Students enrolled at Catholic Theological Union en- 
joy the possibility of enrolling in a number of other Chicago 
theological schools. They may enroll (at no additional tui- 
tion charge) at any of the ten other member schools of the 
Association of Chicago Theological Schools (Chicago Theo- 
logical Seminary, Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary, 
Lutheran School of Theology at Chicago, McCormick Theo- 
logical Seminary, Meadville/Lombard Theological School, 
North Park Theological Seminary, Northern Baptist Theo- 
logical Seminary, St. Mary of the Lake University, Seabury- 
Western Theological Seminary and Trinity Evangelical Di- 
vinity School). 

CTU students may also enroll in courses at the Uni- 
versity of Chicago with significant reduction in tuition. 
Details may be obtained from the Registrar's Office. 

Credit for courses taken in the schools mentioned above 
may be applied toward CTU degree requirements. Up to 
one-third of a student's work may be done in these schools; 
by special arrangement this may be increased to one-half.

Academic Programs 

Catholic Theological Union is a graduate school of 
theology and ministry. Program options include Doctor of 
Ministry, Master of Divinity, Master of Arts in Theology, 
Master of Arts in Pastoral Studies and Certificates in Bibli- 
cal Spirituality, Liturgical Studies or in Pastoral Studies. 

The school's central mission is the academic and pas- 
toral formation of students preparing for the priesthood and 
for a variety of other ministries in the United States and 
around the world. 

The educational process also aims to be responsive to 
the larger cultural and religious pluralism of the world re- 
flected in the school's international student body, in the ecu- 
menical association of theological schools and the urban 
context within which the school carries on its study of the- 
ology and ministry. Accordingly, in its curriculum and com- 
mon life, the school seeks to foster cross-cultural aware- 
ness and sensitivity, ecumenical and inter-faith dialogue, and 
concern for peace, justice and the equality of all people. 

More specific curricular objectives are given with each 
of the degree programs. 

MASTER OF DIVINITY (M. DIV.) 

Aim of the Program 

CTU's M.Div. program seeks to prepare candidates 
for pastoral leadership in a pluralistic world in a variety of 
ministerial contexts. The program combines theological 
education, guided ministerial experience, and structures for 
integrative reflection. As a first professional degree, the 
M.Div. aims to provide a generalist preparation for minis- 
try, while allowing for some concentration within its broad 
framework. 

The M.Div. degree attests that its bearer has attained 
an initial readiness to engage in full-time pastoral ministry 
in the Roman Catholic Church. In this context, "initial readi- 
ness" means that the graduate has appropriated the Catholic 
tradition, possesses the ability to communicate it effectively 
and to engage in pastoral practice faithful to it and is aware 
of the need for ongoing education and formation in ministry. 



24 



The program is open both to candidates for the ordained 
ministry and to lay and religious women and men who will 
not be ordained. Track II of the program is designed to ful- 
fill the requirements for ordination to the presbyterate set 
down in the NCCB's Program of Priestly Formation (fourth 
edition, 1992). 



Admission Requirements 

In addition to the general admission requirements out- 
lined above, applicants for the CTU M.Div. program should 
normally have a liberal arts background, including courses 
in philosophy and undergraduate theology. The philosophy 
course work should be balanced, comprehensive, integrated 
and coherent. It should include the history of philosophy 
and studies in major philosophical issues, such as episte- 
mology, metaphysics, philosophical anthropology and eth- 
ics. Course work in theology or equivalent formation should 
provide applicants with an understanding of the basic teach- 
ings of the Church. Applicants should also consider other 
areas important for ministry, such as the classical roots of 
their own cultures and traditions and languages such as Latin 
and Greek. 

Specific admission requirements for Track I normally 
include: 

— fifteen semester hours of philosophy; 

— nine semester hours of undergraduate theology. 
Specific admission requirements for Track II normally 

include: 

— twenty-four semester hours of philosophy (see the 
Program of Priestly Formation # 234 for specifics); 

— twelve semester hours of undergraduate theology 
(see the Program of Priestly Formation # 235 for 
specifics). 

Applicants who have not completed all the admission 
requirements for the degree may be admitted on condition, 
pending completion of requirements. 

Program Options and Requirements 

The program is divided into foundational and advanced 
areas. Requirements on the foundational level are common 
for all M.Div. candidates and include courses, workshops 
and supervised ministry experience with concomitant 
colloquia, totaling 36 quarter hours. 



MASTER 

OF 
DIVINITY 



25 



Requirements on the advanced level include courses, 
supervised ministry experience with concomitant colloquia, 
and the integrating seminar. In most instances, the course 
requirements are by area rather than by specific course. 

On the advanced level, candidates may choose between 
two tracks for their program. 

— The first track is particularly suited to the needs of 
lay and religious women and men who will not be 
ordained. This track requires a total of 72 quarter 
hours beyond the 36 quarter hours required on the 
foundational level. 

— The second track is designed for priesthood candi- 
dates and implements the guidelines of the NCCB 
Program of Priestly Formation (1992). This track 
requires a total of 105 quarter hours beyond the 36 
quarter hours of foundational courses. 

The program of individual students in either of these 
tracks can also be tailored or expanded to fulfill the require- 
ments of a sponsoring agency or religious community and 
the needs of the student's future ministry.

Language Requirement 

The M.Div. degree has no language requirement. How- 
ever, departments may recommend or require specific lan- 
guage competencies for admission to some courses and con- 
centrations. 

Candidacy 

A student must apply for M.Div. degree candidacy af- 
ter completion of more than 25% but less than 33% of study. 
For students in Track I, application for candidacy is to be 
made after completion of between 27 and 36 quarter credit 
hours of academic work at CTU. Track II students must 
apply for candidacy after completing between 36 and 48 
quarter credit hours of academic work at CTU. 

Advisement and Administration 

Students work with an academic advisor to determine 
the particular shape and requirements of their M.Div. pro- 
gram. 

Full regulations and procedures regarding the M.Div. 
degree are contained in the M.Div. Manual. The M.Div. pro- 
gram is administered by the M.Div. Director, Gilbert Ostdiek 
O.F.M., to whom inquiries should be addressed. 

COOPERATIVE MASTER OF DIVINITY 

CTU participates in a cooperative Master of Divinity 
degree program with the Ecumenical Theological Center in 
Detroit and a cluster of members of the Association of Chi- 
cago Theological Schools, including Garrett Evangelical 
Theological Seminary and Seabury-Western Theological 
Seminary. 

Courses are offered in Detroit at the Ecumenical Theo- 
logical Center by faculty of the four cooperating schools and 
the Center. Students register for courses at the Center and 
apply through the Admissions Office of the cooperating 
school of their choice to become a Master of Divinity de- 
gree candidate. Approximately two-thirds of the curricu- 
lum can be accomplished in Detroit. Students matriculating 
at CTU through the Ecumenical Theological Center in De- 
troit must meet CTU admission requirements. Granting of 
the CTU Master of Divinity degree is contingent upon the 
student's fulfilling all relevant CTU degree requirements.

is a member of the steering committee administering the 
program or by contacting the Ecumenical Theological Cen- 
ter, 8425 West McNichols Road, Detroit, Michigan 48221-

DUALA.M./M.DIV. PROGRAM 

CTU and the University of Chicago School of Social 
Service Administration collaborate in a program of study to 
enable students interested in developing dual competency in 
social work and ministry to earn both the A.M. degree from 
the University of Chicago and the M.Div. degree from Catho- 
lic Theological Union in one academic year less than if they 
completed both degree programs consecutively. 

Applicants to this dual degree program must meet the 
entrance requirements and follow the application procedures 
of Catholic Theological Union and the University of Chi- 
cago School of Social Service Administration. Further de- 
tails on this dual program may be obtained from the M.Div. 
Director at CTU or from the Dean of Students at the U.C. 
School of Social Service Administration. More information 
on the School of Social Service Administration may be found 
in the current issue of its Announcements.

SEQUENCE 



THE M.DIV/PH.D. SEQUENCE 

By a special arrangement with the University of Chi- 
cago, select M.Div. students from Catholic Theological Union 
may pursue a coordinated sequence of programs leading to 
the M.Div. degree at Catholic Theological Union and the 
Ph.D. degree at the University of Chicago Divinity School. 

Upon receiving written approval of the Academic Dean 
of Catholic Theological Union, the student may enter this 
sequence. While pursuing the regular course of study in the 
M.Div. program, the student prepares for the three certify- 
ing examinations and writes an essay on religious studies in 
the modern world. These requirements constitute the pre- 
liminary phase of doctoral study at the University. The cer- 
tifying examinations cover the following areas: Sacred Scrip- 
tures of Judaism, Christianity and Islam; Western Religious 
Traditions to 1500; and Religion in the West, 1500-1900. 

Each year the Divinity School faculty selects a par- 
ticular topic for the essay in religious studies. The school 



30 



also offers a two-course sequence annually in preparation 
for this essay. Students are encouraged, but not required, to 
take this sequence. 

Application for the Ph.D. program includes comple- 
tion of at least two quarters of bi-registration at the Univer- 
sity, enrolling in at least two 400-level courses at the Uni- 
versity of Chicago Divinity School; successful completion 
of the three certifying examinations, the religious studies 
essay and a French or German language examination ad- 
ministered by the University of Chicago. 

M.Div. students may apply for the Ph.D. program when 
they have completed the requirements above and have com- 
pleted two years of the M.Div. program. Application to the 
Ph.D. program does not constitute admission. Applications 
from this sequence will be considered along with other ap- 
plications to the Ph.D. program in the Divinity School. If 
accepted, the student matriculates into the Ph.D. program 
within one year and takes at least two courses in that pro- 
gram thereafter until admitted to Ph.D. candidacy. If rejected, 
the student may apply for an M.A. in the University if the 
regular curricular and financial obligations are met. 

Students must complete the M.Div. before the Ph.D. 
can be awarded. The student may petition to have a faculty 
member from Catholic Theological Union serve as an addi- 
tional examiner in the oral portion of the qualifying exami- 
nations and also serve as a member of the dissertation read- 
ing committee. 

Students may apply credit received in University 
courses to the M.Div. degree in the usual arrangements with 
neighboring institutions. Successful completion of the cer- 
tifying examinations and essay may be substituted for the 
M.Div. Integrating Seminar. Choice of elective courses and 
the field of doctoral study may allow adjustment in M.Div. 
course distribution requirements with the approval of the 
M.Div. Director after consultation with the Academic Dean 
and appropriate departments.

MASTER 

OF ARTS 

IN THEOLOGY 



MASTER OF ARTS IN THEOLOGY (M.A.) 

Catholic Theological Union offers two types of M.A. 
in Theology degree: the Research M.A. and the General Aca- 
demic M.A. In either, students may choose to concentrate in 
biblical studies (a concentration on both testaments or a fo- 
cus on either Old or New Testament), church history, ethics, 
liturgy, pastoral theology, spirituality, systematic theology 
or world mission. 

Both M.A. programs are marked by flexibility with a 
wide variety of individually tailored programs. When they 
apply for admission to the program, normally by the middle 
of the quarter preceding admission, the candidates specify 
their degree objectives. To initiate the degree program, a can- 
didate meets with the M.A. Director who assists in selecting 
a major area and attends to the appointment of an M.A. advi- 
sor. With the advisor the student plans the M.A. program in 
detail. The advisor also helps the student evaluate progress 
and decide on any needed program modifications. 

Interested and eligible students may pursue the M.A. 
concurrently with the M.Div. 

Admission Requirements 

In addition to the general admission requirements of 
the school, M.A. applicants must have completed 18 semes- 
ter hours or 27 quarter hours of theology. This latter can be 
fulfilled by study in foundational areas at CTU. An under- 
graduate major in theology or religious studies from an ac- 
credited college, university, or seminary may be judged to 
be equivalent to such foundational courses. The question of 
equivalency will be determined by the M.A. Director, in 
consultation with the Academic Dean and appropriate fac- 
ulty members prior to the issuance of a letter of admission 
either to the school or to the M.A. program. 

Students with an undergraduate degree but with an 
inadequate background in philosophy shall be required to 
take at least one course in philosophy for the understanding 
of theology, either prior to the first introductory courses at 
CTU, or simultaneously with such courses. [CTU's D 295, 
Philosophical Foundations of Catholic Theology satisfies this 
requirement.] 

Once the prerequisites have been met, the M.A. pro- 
gram will usually take two years. It must normally be com- 
pleted within seven years after formal admittance to the pro- 
gram. 



32 



THE RESEARCH M.A. 

Aim of the Program 

The Research M.A. in theology is designed to provide 
the theological background for those who wish to prepare 
for entrance into a doctoral program in theology or to teach 
religion at a secondary or college level and/or to develop 
greater academic expertise in the area of theological studies. 

Program Requirements 

The Research M.A. program requirements consist of 
courses, language certification, comprehensive examinations 
and thesis. 

Course Requirements 

Course work is divided as follows: 

1 . Eight upper division (400 - 600 level) courses in 
the student's area of specialization (24 hours); 

2. Two upper division courses in each of two other 
theological disciplines (12 hours). 

The student must maintain a "B" (3.0) average; dis- 
missal from the program is automatic if a student receives a 
grade below "C" or more than two "C's." 

A certain number of courses may be transferred from 
previous graduate theological study or taken at other schools 
in the Association of Chicago Theological Schools (See M.A. 
Manual for details). No courses with grades below "B" may 
be transferred into the program. 

Language Certification 

Students are required to be certified during coursework 
in one modern foreign language (preferably French or Ger- 
man). In addition, students in the department of Historical 
and Doctrinal Studies are required to be certified in Latin 
and students in Biblical Studies or Old or New Testament 
are required to be certified in Hebrew and Greek. Language 
competence shall be demonstrated as early as possible within 
the program. Language courses are taught regularly in the 
Hyde Park area. 

Comprehensive Examinations 

The comprehensive examination for the Research M.A. 
is a two-part examination in which the candidates demon- 



M.A. 



33 



strate their grasp of theological method and the content of 
the disciplines included within the scope of their program. 
The content and approach for which the student will be re- 
sponsible in the comprehensives is determined by the student 
and the board of examiners within the general prescriptions 
of the M.A. program. A student may take the comprehensive 
examination two times; upon receipt of a petition from the 
student, the comprehensive board may allow a third attempt. 

Thesis 

The final requirement for the Research M.A. is a the- 
sis in which candidates demonstrate the ability to do compe- 
tent work in their field characterized by research skills in 
method and critical thought. The thesis shall be 80 to 150 
pages in length and conform to one of the manuals of style 
approved by Catholic Theological Union. 

Final Recommendation 

The M.A. Director will determine the candidate's cu- 
mulative grade, based on course work (one half), compre- 
hensive examination (one quarter) and thesis (one quarter). 
An appropriate recommendation will then be made to the 
Dean and Faculty for the conferring of the degree. 

THE GENERAL ACADEMIC M.A. 

Aim of the Program 

The General Academic M.A. in Theology is designed 
to provide the theological background for those who wish to 
teach religion at a secondary or college level or to develop 
greater academic expertise in the area of theological studies. 
The General Academic M.A. is not intended as preparation 
for doctoral work. 

Program Requirements 

The General Academic M.A. program requirements 
consist of courses and comprehensive examination. The 
Department of Biblical Languages and Literature requires, 
in addition, a basic knowledge of Biblical Hebrew and Greek 
for students whose major area of concentration is Biblical 
Studies or Old or New Testament. 



34 



Course Requirements 

Course work is divided as follows: 

1 . Ten upper division (400 - 600 level) courses in the 
student's area of specialization (30 hours); 

2. Four upper division courses in another theological 
discipline (12 hours); 

3. One upper division course in one other theological 
discipline (3 hours). 

The student must maintain a "B" (3.0) average. Dis- 
missal from the program is automatic if a student receives a 
grade below a "C" or more than two "C's." 

A certain number of courses may be transferred from 
previous graduate theological studies or may be taken at other 
schools in the Association of Chicago Theological Schools 
(See M.A. Manual for details). No courses with grades be- 
low "B" may be transferred into the program. 

Comprehensive Examination 

The comprehensive examination for the General Aca- 
demic M.A. is a two-part examination in which the student 
demonstrates a grasp of the state of the question of the con- 
tent of the disciplines included within the student's scope of 
study. The content of the examination is determined by the 
student and the board of examiners within the general pre- 
scriptions of the General Academic M.A. program. A stu- 
dent may take the comprehensive examination two times; 
upon receipt of a petition from the student, the comprehen- 
sive board may allow a third attempt. 

Final Recommendation 

The M.A. Director will determine the student's cumu- 
lative grade, based on course work (one half) and compre- 
hensive examination (one half). The director then makes a 
recommendation to the Dean and Faculty to confer the de- 
gree. 

Administration and Further Regulations 

The M.A. program is administered by Zachary Hayes, 
O.F.M., Director. Inquiries concerning the program should 
be directed to the CTU Admissions Office. Further regula- M.A. 
tions for the M.A. program are contained in the M.A. Manual.

MASTER OF ARTS IN PASTORAL STUDIES (M. A.P.S.) 



MASTER OF 

ARTS IN 

PASTORAL 

STUDIES 



Aim of the Program 

The Master of Arts in Pastoral Studies 
(M. A.P.S.) is a professional degree designed to assist people 
in enhancing their ability to serve as ministers in the church. 

Building upon previous ministerial experience, the 
M. A.P.S. provides education in the foundational areas of theo- 
logical disciplines, a focus for developing selected pastoral 
skills and an integration of these skills within the framework 
of a general theological understanding. The M.A.P.S. is in- 
tended for persons who have had some ministerial experi- 
ence and who wish to prepare for new ministries or to en- 
hance their effectiveness in their current ministry. 

Although the M.A.P.S. draws upon the same resources 
as does the General Academic M.A., the Research M.A. and 
the M.Div. degrees and shares aspects of their objectives and 
design, it is, nonetheless, a distinctive program with its own 
focus. 

The M.A.P.S. differs from the M.Div. in that it is de- 
signed to meet the special needs of persons changing minis- 
tries or upgrading ministerial skills after some years of ex- 
perience in the field. The M.Div. is meant to be initial prepa- 
ration for ministry. 



36 



As a program providing not only general theological 
understanding but also specific ministerial skills and com- 
petencies, the M.A.P.S. differs from the other two M.A. de- 
grees and so cannot be pursued concurrently with them. 

Work done in CTU's Certificates in Biblical Spiritual- 
ity, Liturgical Studies and Pastoral Studies can be applied 
toward the M.A.P.S. degree. Work done in the M.A.P.S. pro- 
gram can be applied toward the M.Div. degree, although the 
two programs cannot be pursued concurrently. 

Admission Requirements 

In addition to the general admission requirements, at 
least three years of experience involving the communication 
of religious values to others are required. Some background 
in theology, philosophy, history, psychology and sociology 
is recommended. The adequacy of this background will be 
determined according to the student's specific program. 

Individually Designed Course of Study 

Recognition of the diverse backgrounds of the adults 
who enter the Master of Arts in Pastoral Studies Program 
necessitates special attention to the interview and applica- 
tion process, academic advising and opportunities for per- 
sonal and spiritual development that will facilitate the inte- 
gration of theory and praxis in ministry. 

Individually designed courses of study enable the adult 
learners with diverse backgrounds to achieve their objectives 
in pursuing the M.A.P.S. 

Program Requirements 

The equivalent of two full-time academic years (72 
quarter credit hours) is required for the M.A.P.S. degree. 
Advanced standing and transfer of credit may be granted for 
previous theological study and applied to the theological dis- 
ciplines of the M.A.P.S. Decisions on advanced standing 
and transfer of credit are based upon transcript evaluation 
and student interview. Candidates must maintain a 3.0 cu- 
mulative grade point average. The program must be com- 
pleted within seven years. 

Specific hour requirements fall into three areas: theo- 
logical disciplines, pastoral skills and integrative experiences. 



37 



Theological Disciplines: 42 hours 

The theological areas are meant to provide some ground- 
ing in the major theological disciplines. They include: 

Biblical Studies 12 hours 

Church History 3 hours 

Systematic Theology 12 hours 

Ethics 6 hours 

Liturgy 3 hours 

Cross-Cultural Ministry 3 hours 

Pastoral Care 3 hours 

Pastoral Skills: 21 hours 

The pastoral area provides work in selected areas of pas- 
toral skills. The 21 hours are distributed in the following 
manner: 

Area of Concentration 18 hours 

Electives 3 hours 

Integrative Experiences: 9 hours 

Nine hours are required in the integrative area. Three of 
these hours are to be completed in the first year of residency, 
ordinarily through the M.A.P.S. Colloquium. These hours 
are meant to aid the candidates in reflecting on their previ- 
ous ministerial experience. 

Three hours are to be done in the second year, to serve 
as a focus for a fuller integration of pastoral skills, theologi- 
cal reflection and ministerial experience. 

The final three hours are granted for the M.A.P.S. 
project which is oriented to the candidate's projected area of 
pastoral ministry and is completed under the supervision of 
faculty in the appropriate area. The project may be done in 
conjunction with an integrating course. 

The integrative nature of the degree is an essential as- 
pect that must be stressed throughout the entire program of 
study. Opportunities for personal, ministerial and faith de- 
velopment are also essential. The three academic compo- 
nents of the integrative area are: 

M.A. in Pastoral Studies Colloquium 3 hours 

Ministerial Field Placement and/or Reflection 
M. A. P. S. on Ministry 3 hours 

M.A.P.S. Project or Integrative Paper 3 hours 



38 



Language Requirement 

There are no language requirements as such for the 
M.A.P.S., although language competencies may be required 
for entry into certain courses. 

Administration 

The M.A.P.S. Program is directed and administered 
by Jeanette M. Lucinio, S.P., Director. Further regulations 
for the M.A.P.S. program are found in the M.A.P.S. Manual. 

JOINT DOCTOR OF MINISTRY (JOINT D. MIN.) 

Aim of the Program 

The Joint Doctor of Ministry program, offered by 
Catholic Theological Union at Chicago, Lutheran School of 
Theology at Chicago and McCormick Theological Semi- 
nary, is an advanced degree for ministers (lay and ordained) 
with significant experience in ministry, who wish to inte- 
grate advanced mastery of theological concepts with con- 
tinued development of pastoral skills to enhance the prac- 
tice of ministry. 

Admission Requirements 

Application can be made to the Joint D.Min. program 
through any of the three collaborating institutions (CTU, 
LSTC and MTS). The application process is coordinated 
by the Joint D.Min. director. 

Prerequisites: Applicants hold an M.Div. degree or 
the equivalent of three years of graduate theological studies 
with a cumulative average of 3.00 or better. Applicants have 
completed five years of full-time ministerial experience. Or- 
dinarily such experience follows the completion of their first 
ministerial degree. 

Documentation: Applicants submit a detailed curricu- 
lum vitae and have all college and graduate level transcripts 
forwarded from the appropriate institutions to the director 
of the Joint D.Min. program. Applicants also submit a 1000 
to 1500 word essay that includes: a) a statement of their per- 
sonal goals in ministry; b) a descriptive self-assessment of 
their ministry; and c) an annotated list of their readings in 
theology and ministry over the past two years. Letters of 
reference must come from an ecclesiastical superior and from 
someone who can attest to the applicant's academic ability. 
A non-refundable matriculation fee must accompany the 
application. CTU reserves the right to interview applicants. 



M. A. P. S. 



DOCTOR 

OF 
MINISTRY 



39 



Deadlines: The deadline for completed applications 
and supporting materials, including the interview, is March 
15. 

Program Design 

The Joint D.Min. program balances the acquisition of 
content and the development of skills brought together in an 
integrated fashion to enhance the practice of ministry. The 
program utilizes peer learning, supervised learning and 
self-directed learning experiences along with classroom in- 
struction. 

Structure and Duration of the Program 

A total of fifteen courses is required for the successful 
completion of the program. 

Core Colloquia (3 courses) 

Supervised Leadership Training (1 course) 

Electives (9 courses) 

Thesis (2 courses) 

The minimum time required for the course work, aside 
from the thesis, is one academic year plus an intensive 
three-week session in September. Preparation and approval 
of the thesis ordinarily require one academic year. The en- 
tire program is ordinarily not be completed in less than two 
or more than five years. Flexibility in the program allows 
participants to pursue the degree on a part time basis, as 
long as they have completed Core Colloquia I and II in their 
first year. 

Core Colloquia: In the three core colloquia, students 
explore various methodological frameworks for ministry in 
light of their own ministerial experiences. In Core Colloquia 
I and II, participants think together about the nature of min- 
istry and its methods, largely through case studies. Strong 
theoretical foundations wedded to personal ministry experi- 
ences in the context of interdisciplinary, peer learning make 
the colloquia central to the Joint D.Min. degree and to the 
development of a community of learning. Core Colloquium 
III specifically prepares students to write their theses. 

Supervised Leadership Training: Supervised leader- 
ship training experiences are track-specific. They may in- 
volve working with M.Div. or M.A.P.S. students in collabo- 
ration with faculty or another supervisor. 

Electives: The nine electives are ordinarily distri- 
buted to include five courses in the area of concentration 
and four courses outside the area of concentration. 



40 



Thesis-Project: Students may write the thesis upon 
completion of course work and admission to candidacy. The 
thesis addresses the nature and practice of ministry in the 
area of the concentration, identifying a specific concern in 
ministry, bringing to bear both the appropriate literature and 
critical theological reflection and proposing a response. The 
thesis is ordinarily 125 to 150 pages in length. 

Evaluations: 

1. Initial Evaluation. The mid-term evaluation takes 
place at the end of the Fall quarter of the first year 
for all students. It follows Core Colloquium II. 

2. Candidacy Evaluation. The candidacy evaluation 
assesses the student's development in the program 
and determines whether the student is on a path that 
points to successful completion of the degree. This 
central evaluation in the Joint D.Min. program oc- 
curs after Core Colloquium III. 

3. The Final Evaluation. The evaluation of the fin- 
ished thesis is the final evaluation. A committee of 
five (including the Joint D.Min. director, the thesis 
director, one or two other faculty members, and two 
other D.Min. students) makes this evaluation. 

The Concentration in Cross-Cultural Ministries 

The term "cross-cultural ministries" is understood here 
to designate ministries exercised by persons who are not 
members of the culture in which they are ministering or min- 
istries exercised in a minority culture. In the latter case, the 
minister may or may not be a member of that same minority 
culture. Thus, the program hopes to address both outsiders 
and insiders in varied cultural situations. This is a concen- 
tration for persons who already have experience in 
cross-cultural ministry, not for those who wish to enter it for 
the first time. Consequently, the five years of ministerial 
experience prerequisite for the entry into this concentration 
of the Joint D.Min. must have been in a cross-cultural set- 
ting, and in not more than two such settings. 

The concentration focuses on areas of ministry where 
cultural differences raise special challenges to pastoral and 
missionary activity. Skills development focuses on tools for 
analysis of cultures, communication across cultural bound- 
aries and differing styles of leadership appropriate to living 



41 



on cultural boundaries. Theory will center on the under- 
standing of cultures, the region where culture and theology 
intersect and formation of communities within and across 
cultural and faith boundaries. The concentration is interdis- 
ciplinary and ecumenical. 

Supervised Leadership Training: This is accom- 
plished ordinarily within the context of I 460: Training for 
Cross-Cultural Ministry, I 575: Mission/Ministry Integra- 
tion Seminar, or a similar approved setting. D.Min. stu- 
dents help in supervising and leading reflection for students 
in these courses and, themselves, reflect upon what is in- 
volved in helping people enter cross-cultural ministry. 

Electives: The electives are chosen so that at least two 
courses allow for a deepening of theological understanding, 
at least two courses allow for further development of the 
methodology of cross-cultural ministry and at least one 
course allows for addressing cross-cultural knowledge from 
a setting other than the student's own. 

The Concentration in Liturgy 

The concentration in liturgy has the goal of serving 
the entire worship event in order to make it more authentic 
and effective. It combines historical and systematic studies 
with emerging pastoral methods to enable students to con- 
struct worship in the light of liturgical traditions and to as- 
sess the effectiveness of worship in particular communities. 
It is a concentration for persons who already have experi- 
ence in liturgical ministries, not for those who wish to enter 
this ministry for the first time. Consequently, the five years 
of ministerial experience prerequisite for entry into the Joint 
D.Min. program should include a significant focus on litur- 
gical ministry. 

Supervised Leadership Training: This is ordinarily 
accomplished within the context of various practica courses 
offered in the curriculum. D.Min. students will help in su- 
pervising these practica courses and assist M.Div. and 
M. A.P.S. students develop skills in liturgical leadership while 
simultaneously reflecting on what is involved in helping oth- 
ers to minister liturgically. 

Electives: The study of liturgy distinguishes between 
foundational (culture and worship, eucharist, initiation, li- 
turgical theology, liturgy and time, ritual studies) and ancil- 



42 



lary topics (liturgical environment, liturgical music, liturgy 
and pastoral care, rites of vocation, rites of healing, oriental 
liturgy, popular religiosity, liturgical preaching). Candidates 
in this concentration must demonstrate mastery of all foun- 
dational areas of study. Ordinarily three of the nine elec- 
tives should be taken in these foundational areas. Given the 
ecumenical context and commitment of the school, it is 
strongly recommended that students concentrate some part 
of their work in a liturgical tradition other than their own. 

The Concentration in Spirituality 

Spirituality is broadly defined as a "combination of 
praying and living." It is this embodiment of prayer in life 
that the New Testament writers describe in such phrases as 
"a living sacrifice," "spiritual worship" (Rom 12.1), and "a 
sacrifice of praise" (Heb. 15). Christian spirituality is fun- 
damentally ecclesial; the spirituality of individuals is formed 
within the context of a faith community. The concentration 
in spirituality, therefore, is designed to enhance the reflec- 
tive and pastoral skills of those whose ministerial goal is to 
foster spiritual development through leadership within Chris- 
tian communities. Drawing upon the rich resources of the 
joint faculty, the concentration emphasizes the leader's 
growth in theological, historical, and cross-cultural aware- 
ness as well as in pastoral expertise. 

This concentration is intended for people who already 
have significant experience in spiritual leadership, not for 
those who wish to assume such leadership for the first time. 
Consequently, the five years of ministerial experience pre- 
requisite for entry into this concentration should include a 
significant focus on spiritual leadership. 

Supervised Leadership Training: This may be ac- 
complished through assisting with spiritual formation pro- 
grams offered through the Dean of Students' Office, or 
through working with the Ministry Practicum II or the Inte- 
grating Seminar for M.Div. students. This requirement may 
also be fulfilled in other approved formation settings or by 
other options suggested by the D.Min. student. 

Electives: In consultation with an academic advisor, 
each student selects five electives in the concentration. Spe- 
cific distribution requirements are described in the Joint 
D.Min. manual. 



43 



Administration and Further Regulations 

The Joint D.Min. program is administered by Edward 
Foley, O.F.M. Cap., Director. Inquiries concerning the pro- 
gram should be directed to his office. Further regulations 
for the Joint D.Min. program are contained in the Joint 
D.Min. manual.

WORLD 

MISSION 

CONCENTRATION 



PROGRAMS WITH 
WORLD MISSION CONCENTRATION 

The concentration in world mission at Catholic Theo- 
logical Union has been developed to allow students to choose 
a mission focus in any of the various degree programs of- 
fered by the school, as well as to meet the needs of furloughed 
and returned missionaries who come to the school for one or 
more terms of continuing education. It also challenges all 
theological education at CTU with the reality of cultural and 
religious pluralism in the global church. 

It is with this purpose that CTU has shaped the World 
Mission Concentration. It has organized biblical, historical, 
systematic and ethical courses with mission as their focus 
and/or content. It has created a specialized intensive course 
to help people prepare for cross-cultural ministry and a mis- 
sion/ministry/spirituality integrating seminar to aid returned 
missionaries to process both their experience abroad and their 
re-entry. It has sought out pastoral placements most suitable 
for reflection on the church's mission. 



44 



The World Mission Concentration is thus an interdis- 
ciplinary concentration which prepares students for minis- 
try. Overseen by the Cross-Cultural Ministries Department 
(CCM), it is composed of courses which feature missiological 
dimensions in systematic theology, ethics, biblical, pastoral 
and liturgical studies, and courses with a cross-cultural fo- 
cus which feature the dynamics of culture in a particular area 
of study and the implications of culture for mission and min- 
istry. 

All degree programs provide for a concentration in 
mission and cross-cultural studies. The requirements for each 
follow. 



Doctor of Ministry 

The general requirements are those listed for the D.Min. 
degree. Special requirements for the concentration in Cross- 
Cultural Ministries are found on pp. 41-42. 

Master of Divinity with World Mission Concentration 

M.Div. Track I 

A concentration in World Mission in Track I is achieved 
by taking four courses with a mission or cross-cultural focus 
in the core curriculum, four courses in electives in mission 
or cross culture, and completing MPI/MPII in a cross-cul- 
tural site or participating in the Overseas Training Program 
(OTP). 

In addition, three courses out of a possible four elec- 
tives must be taken from courses designated by the Depart- 
ment of Cross-Cultural Ministries. Of these three courses, 
one would be taken in mission or cross-cultural theory; one 
in cultural area studies; and one selected according to the 
student's choice. 

M.Div. Track II 

A concentration in World Mission in Track II is 
achieved by taking five courses with a mission or cross-cul- 
tural focus in the core curriculum, five courses in electives 
in mission or cross culture, and completing MPII in a cross- 
cultural site or participating in the OTP. 

In addition, five courses out of a possible six electives 
must be taken from courses designated by the Department of 
Cross-Cultural Ministries. Of these five courses, one would

MISSION 

CONCENTRATION 



45 



be taken in mission or cross-cultural theory; two in cultural 
area studies; and two selected according to the student's 
choice. 

Once an M.Div. student has been approved for the 
World Mission Concentration, the chairperson of CCM will 
appoint a concentration consultant from within the depart- 
ment to assist the student in designing his or her program to 
fulfill concentration requirements. 

Approval of OTP placement or MP II site is given by 
CCM and the case history is evaluated by the department. 
Normally the OTP experience is preceded by I 460 (6 cred- 
its) and followed by I 575. 

Master of Arts in Theology 

Requirements are the same as those listed for the M. A. 
degree. The advanced level courses taken as the major area 
are in mission and cross-cultural studies. 



WORLD 

MISSION 

CONCENTRATION 



Master of Arts in Pastoral Studies 

Requirements are the same as those listed for the 
M.A.RS. degree. The area of concentration is world mis- 
sion and cross-cultural studies. 

Catholic Theological Union carries out its World Mis- 
sion Program in cooperation with the Association of Chi- 
cago Theological Schools. This guarantees a broad theo- 
logical and ecumenical perspective. Together the schools 
participate in planning and sponsoring various workshops 
and meetings on current mission and international issues and 
the World Mission Institute held each April. CTU is also a 
participant in the project for the Globalization of Theologi- 
cal Education and a co-sponsor of the Chicago Center for 
Global Ministries. 

For further information, contact Gary Riebe-Estrella, 
S.V.D., chairperson of the Cross-Cultural Ministries depart- 
ment, or John Kaserow, M.M., the Coordinator for World 
Mission. 

PROGRAMS WITH BIBLE CONCENTRATION 



Students pursuing the Master of Divinity degree or 
other degrees are able to concentrate in biblical studies with 
a view to being further grounded in a biblical approach in 
spirituality and ministry. 

46 



Master of Divinity with Bible Concentration 

General biblical requirements are the same as those 
listed for Tracks I and II of the M.Div. degree. In addition, 
for concentration in the biblical field: 

— with advisement from the department, at least three 
general electives (9 hours) are to be taken in the 
biblical field, preferably on the 500 - 600 level; 

— two other supporting courses (6 hours) from the 
general M.Div. curriculum are to be taken with 
projects reflecting the biblical dimensions of the 
area of study; 

— participation in the Spring or Fall Israel Study Pro- 
gram is normally required as an integral part of the 
concentration (12 hours, applicable to M.Div. bible 
requirements); 

— through appropriate advisement, the Ministry 
Practicum II (9 hours) shall be so structured that 
the Bible can be used in an explicit way, e.g. in 
preaching or teaching ministries; 

— students in Track I who do not take the Ministry 
Practicum II must take an additional general elec- 
tive (3 hours) in Bible, preferably an interdiscipli- 
nary course (e.g., Bible and Preaching); 

— with advisement from the department, students are 
strongly urged to take at least one course in another 
ACTS school and to include among their biblical 
courses one in a biblical language and one in Rab- 
binic Judaism. 

Certificate in Biblical Spirituality 

The Biblical Spirituality Program is a twelve course 
(36 credit hour) certificate program concentrating on the 
Bible in which class lectures, seminar discussion, study and 
prayer center upon the Bible as the common basis of Chris- 
tian living and Christian mission. A student normally be-

PROGRAMS WITH WORD AND 
WORSHIP CONCENTRATION 

The Department of Word and Worship offers a con- 
centration in preaching and pastoral liturgy within the M.Div., 
M.A., M.A.P.S., D.Min. and Certificate programs. This con- 
centration seeks to combine a theological understanding of 
preaching and liturgy with appropriate academic and pasto- 
ral skills. It enables the student to integrate the study and 
practice of liturgy and preaching within a larger context of 
theology and pastoral care. 

Individual students work with the department chair- 
person to plan the specific content of their program in keep- 
ing with their background and future ministerial goals. In 
addition to CTU's course offerings, students working in Word 
and Worship programs have access to a wide variety of course 
offerings in preaching and liturgy in neighboring schools.

field sites for developing skills in Word and Worship. The 
program options and the Word and Worship requirements 
are as follows:

PROGRAMS WITH PASTORAL 

THEOLOGY CONCENTRATION 

Master of Divinity with Pastoral Theology Concentration 

The Master of Divinity with a concentration in pasto- 
ral theology is designed to provide students with the oppor- 
tunity to coordinate their studies in ways that will enhance 
preparation for the general practice of ministry in a variety of 
settings. It is rooted in a recognition that all the disciplines of 
ministry are important in developing a coherent and integrated 
approach to pastoral work. The concentration employs an 
interdisciplinary design which enables students to pursue a 
chosen focus from a variety of perspectives. 

Individual students working with their advisor plan 
the specific program in keeping with their background and 
future ministerial goals. In addition to CTU's course offer- 
ings, students working in pastoral theology have access to a 
wide variety of course offerings in pastoral care, spiritual- 
ity, social justice ministry and pastoral theology in neigh- 
boring schools. The Chicago area also provides a wide range 
of opportunities for developing the knowledge and skills 
needed for an integrated approach to pastoral work. 

General requirements for the concentration in pasto- 
ral theology are the same as those listed for the M.Div. pro- 
gram. Concentration in pastoral theology is achieved by these 
further specifications of the regular M.Div. requirements:

Sheptytsky Institute in Eastern Christian Studies at Mt Tabor 

Catholic Theological Union offers students the oppor- 
tunity to integrate study of the theology, liturgy and spiritu- 
ality of the Christian East with a lived experience of what 
Eastern Christians look upon as the summit of their spiritual 
tradition: monasticism. The opportunity is through the 
Sheptytsky Institute at Mt. Tabor, a summer session at Holy 
Transfiguration Monastery in California. 

Students can earn six quarter credits applicable to 
M.Div., M.A. and M.A.P.S. requirements. The summer ex- 
perience normally consists of a month-long stay at the Ukrai- 
nian Catholic Monastery of the Holy Transfiguration (Mt. 
Tabor) in Redwood Valley, California, where participants 
enter as fully as possible into the life of the monks. This 
includes adherence to the full schedule of personal prayer 
and fasting, as well as participation in four to five hours of 
liturgy a day. In addition, participants attend two three-credit 
courses in Eastern theology, spirituality and liturgy. A field 
trip to San Francisco is included, with visits to local Eastern 
parishes, both Orthodox and Catholic. At the conclusion of 
the summer program, a debriefing seminar is held to facili- 
tate re-entry into "the world" from the monastic experience.

The Sheptytsky Institute was founded at Catholic Theo- 
logical Union in 1986; its summer program remains affili- 
ated with CTU even though the Institute's headquarters have 
moved to St. Paul University in Ottawa. Further details about 
the summer intensive at Mt. Tabor may be obtained from the 
Office of the Dean or by writing to Rev. Andriy Chirovsky, 
Director, Sheptytsky Institute, Saint Paul University, 223

Israel Study Program 

Catholic Theological Union offers four special pro- 
grams which combine scripture study and travel in biblical 
lands. 

Each fall, for a full quarter, the program includes lec- 
tures on Scripture and guided exploration of biblical sites in 
Greece, Turkey, Israel and Egypt. A re-entry seminar/retreat 
is conducted at CTU at the conclusion of the program to help 
participants relate their overseas experience to theology, spiri- 
tuality and ministry. Students may earn up to 1 5 quarter hours 
of credit applicable to M.Div., M.A. or M.A.P.S. requirements. 
The overseas course work concentrates on the history and 
archaeology of Israel and on a variety of Old and New Testa- 
ment traditions. The 1994 Fall study will be conducted by 
Barbara Reid, O.P., Leslie Hoppe, O.F.M., and Marianne 
Race, C.S.J. In 1995 Carolyn Osiek, R.S.C.J., and Marianne 
Race, C.S.J., will conduct the Fall quarter study. 

Every other Spring CTU offers a three-week intensive 
during the latter part of the quarter in Israel. The next pro- 
gram will be conducted by Barbara Bowe, R.S.C.J., in the 
Spring of 1995. For the first nine weeks of the quarter stu- 
dents may take at CTU two full quarter courses designed to 
be completed during that time frame; a third course (B475 
History and Archaeology of Israel) will also be offered. This 
course will serve as direct preparation for the overseas expe- 
rience. During the three weeks in Israel, students will have 
guided tours of major biblical sites. Participants in the entire 
Spring program may earn 12 quarter credits applicable to- 
ward degree or certificate requirements. 

In the summer of 1994, Barbara Bowe, R.S.C.J., and 
Marianne Race, C.S.J. , will direct an eighteen-day study tour,

in Rome." This program is distinct from the Spring Israel 
Program; however, it will follow that program directly and 
it is possible to participate in both. 

An Israel Retreat centered in Jerusalem and Galilee is 
conducted each August. Conferences in the 20-day program 
develop the religious impact from the biblical and archaeo- 
logical memories of the sites visited and provide orientation 
to biblical sites, scripture passages and reflection points. A 
portion of each day is spent visiting biblical sites for prayer 
and reflection. 

On all biblical study opportunities students are accom- 
panied by biblical faculty from CTU; expert resource people 
overseas also participate. 

The Director of the Israel Study Programs and other 
travel study programs is Marianne Race, C.S.J. Further de-
